Why Hire Mike Slocumb Law Firm?
If you're facing serious injuries or you lost a loved one in a cycling accident, you will need someone on your side with a comprehensive understanding of the laws.

Mike Slocumb has a well-deserved reputation for fighting aggressively on behalf of clients. He has successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of victims of injuries and wrongful death.
Why Are Bike Accidents Serious?
A car that crashes into a bicycle may end up with little more than a few scratches on the paint. The bicycle, on the other hand, may be destroyed and the rider may suffer extreme injuries. While bicycles can be fun to ride, they are relatively unstable modes of transportation. They have thin tires. Even experienced riders may be unable to stay in control if the road conditions are bad (such as encountering potholes, manhole covers or railroad tracks).
But perhaps the most common types of cycling accidents involve crashes with motor vehicles. Each year hundreds of cyclists are killed and tens of thousands suffer injuries in accidents with cars and trucks.
What to Do After a Cycling Accident
It's likely that someone injured in a bicycle accident has never confronted this type of situation before. Therefore, it's common for victims to have many questions about what to do next. Accidents that cause injuries often lead to steep medical bills. Victims may have to take time off from work to recover or for medical appointments. If you were injured through no fault of your own, you rightfully should expect the at-fault party to pay for your accident-related expenses.
That's where we can help. The Mike Slocumb Law Firm can fight for the compensation you need for medical bills and lost wages. You may be entitled to recover compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering. Our firm can evaluate your case and help determine the best course of action. If you were injured by a drunk driver, for example, we may be able to pursue punitive damages from that negligent individual. These are damages that exceed simple compensation and serve as means to punish the defendant.
